This weekend was busy with all different types of people all ready to kick off the first long weekend of the summer at the lake. The seasonal campground was full with people cutting grass, cleaning trailers and getting their lots ready for another special summer at the Narrows.

The dock was a flurry of activity as boaters came to get their spot information, the keys for the gate and their boat secure in their personal spot. The weekend campground was even busier this May Long than others with people eager to enjoy the nice weather either by the fire or out on the lake. I took several drives around the area this weekend and everywhere I went I saw friendly faces, excited about the start to summer and the potential for one of the best summers at the Narrows.

Due to the fact that the Narrows has so many things to offer our guests - from spending time at the beach with family, to relaxing in the campground, to fishing off the rocks or in a boat - it is important to remember that everyone that comes to the Narrows has their own idea of how to relax or unwind and we must be mindful and respect others around us. Therefore, I would like to take this time to remind all of our customers of the etiquette we expect to see at the Narrows each summer to allow everyone to enjoy the Narrows to its fullest.

First Paint-By-Narrows: A True Work Of Art

by Revy.
On top of the camping, fishing and fun by the water, this May Long the Narrows hosted its first of three paint nights that will be offered to the public this summer. Paint Nights have become very popular in the city recently and we wanted in on the fun! The event ran from 1 - 4 pm on Sunday May 22 and was hosted by both Narrows West Lodge and our local artist Shirley Germain, who led the instruction.

We arrived to the conference room to find it had been transformed into an art studio, with our project displayed on the front and all the supplies needed. Shirley not only had the room ready to motivate our creative side, but had prepared plates of cheese, crackers and grapes and a variety of wines for help with inspiration.

Within three hours, in a relaxed environment, all participants of varying artistic abilities were able to leave with your own rendering of the sample project on a 16 X 20 canvas. Due to Shirley's guidance and inspiration, we left with a painting we were proud of as well as a nice time with friends to sip on wine and overlook the lake as our masterpieces were drying. It was a lovely evening and we all had fun! I intended to be involved in the first one only but afterward I signed up for the next three events.
